Learn the secrets Larry David has gleaned from the Falstaff of television. Live your best Leon. Bring the ruckus. Aristotle. Gandhi. Lao Tzu. Dr. Ruth. Amateurs. For centuries, bespectacled dorks have pored over the scrolls of the ancients, read tea leaves, and looked to the stars for philosophy, wisdom, and advice.

These are the musings of a master genius spitting out the secrets of the universe - to help you become just like him. Be forewarned: in opening this audiobook and Leon´s mind, you need to be prepared for straight talk. The kind of unfiltered blunt straight talk that pounds on your door; invites itself in; makes itself at home; helps itself to your food, your security pass code, and your expensive organic beet juice; and finally makes itself comfortable on that twin bed in your guest room. All the while you think you´re helping it - but really it´s helping you help yourself! Because that´s how this book doozit. Leon Black: He ain´t wrong...he just ain´t right. 1. Language: English.

Our planet is in peril. Our species is in captivity. We alone hold the key.We have become disconnected from the love song of our living planet, and as a result, she has become severely out of balance as she spirals through her evolution. It is not beyond our power to regain a harmonious relationship with our plentiful Mother Earth, and as we reweave the web of symbiosis we were born with, humanity may once again experience a life without limitation. We are meant to be integral components of the wild, not slaves of the systematic destruction of it, and as the veil of our incarceration is lifted, we will rise to the occasion of tearing down the walls that contain us.This is the story of one water protector´s path to understanding, his struggle to find what it means to live in a good way, and the incredible world that his adventure reveals along the journey. From Rattlesnakes to frybread to space dust to space funk, the music of the universe has a most compelling story to share, and as we ride the wave of this fundamental vibration, we become enlightened to the astounding complexity of creation. We are the dreamers, we are the creators, we have the ability to manifest our own reality as we travel throughout this material existence, and it is up to us to believe in the abundance of tomorrow.We have become lost in a cloud of fear, as we insist on imagining the worst possible outcomes for our children´s future. The powers-that-be are attempting to subdue our awakening, but we are emerging from this nightmare, and rediscovering the true nature of the spirit within. Life is meant to be lived, every moment is meant to be cherished, and you are meant to be you. The language of human supremacy has convinced us that we are powerless, but we alone hold the key to unlocking the cages of our planet, and as we shed this illusion of scarcity, the magic of the garden will once again be free to bloom.And we´re gonna make the best late night snacks. 1.

What if by using the principles of logical argument, we can identify a true religion? Could we then not identify its existence from among the world´s religions? And should we not promote that religion as the one and only true religion? The idea of a Utopian religion shouldn´t scare anyone, but rather it should be sought after and embraced. The idea that we as a people can identify a true religion means that we must discard false or illogical religion and religious concepts. The process begins by being able to distinguish true deity. One must know the true God in order to be able to worship him/her. This volume is a sequel to my book, Basic Philosophy. Elements of that book were added to this book and edited and explained. John Lennon imagined a world without religion, but I however, imagine a world with true religion and the discarding of false religion and its false principles. 1. Language: English.

Isabel Dalhousie is a new mother and a connoisseur of philosophy; she´d rather not be a sleuth. But when a chance conversation at a dinner party draws Isabel into the case of a doctor whose career has been ruined, she cannot ignore what may be a miscarriage of justice. Because for Isabel ethics are not theoretical at all, but an everyday matter of life and death. As she attempts to unravel the truth behind Dr Thompson´s disgrace, Isabel´s patient intelligence is also required to deal with challenges in her own life. There is her baby son Charlie; Cat´s deli to look after, not to mention her vulnerable assistant Eddie; and a mysterious and unlikeable composer who has latched on to Jamie, making Isabel fear for the future of her new family. Isabel treads a difficult path between trust and gullibility, philanthropy and interference, while keeping in her sights the small but certain comforts of family, philosophy and a fine Saturday morning. 1.

It is the purpose of this book, the first of a two-part series, to, through an Epicurean lens, examine the obstacles to a good life and introduce solutions. Most of what this book says, the sequel will expand on, but much must be left to the listener to develop in their own mind and in their own way. This book has been written and edited with that critical view in mind. Once the background material has been covered, the obstacles to a pleasant life will be presented, followed by the tools required to overcome them, and then the habits and practice that apply those tools. Book two will expand on this by presenting potential problems with Epicurean ideas and methods, and troubleshoot additional obstacles that may emerge in applying them. 1. Language: English.
